Title: Dr Sandra Lean - Co Director of Wrongly Accused Person Org
Post by: John on June 09, 2012, 01:33:07 AM
Sandra Lean, or Dr Sandra Lean as she is now known, is an author and co-director of the Wrongly Accused Person Organisation, a charity registered in Scotland. Although Dr Lean lives near Edinburgh, the organisation is administered and run by fellow co-director Billy Middleton from his parents home in Lerwick, Shetland Islands.

The Wrongly Accused Person Organisation is a Scottish Charity registration number SC041953 and according to its registration blog is concerned with the advancement of human rights, conflict resolution or reconciliation, the relief of those in need by reason of age, ill health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage.  It also apparently makes grants, donations, loans, gifts or pensions to individuals and makes grants, donations or gifts to organisations.

Object:

1) to promote and support the rights of the wrongly accused and their families by providing knowledge, understanding and information to facilitate exoneration where possible in advancement of articles 7,8, 10 & 11 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

2) to assist reintegration of wrongly accused persons into society with a focus on their security of person, and freedom from prejudice and conflict in advancement of articles 1,2,3, 5 & 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Not bad for an organisation which hasn't declared a single penny of income or expenditure to the Charity Commissioner since its registration on 13 December 2010.

Well congrats are in order to Sandra Lean who has at last achieved her dream of attaining a PHD. Plain old Sandra Lean seems to have gone for ever as the new Dr prefix becomes ever more visible across the www.

I have never had an answer to my question though, has Dr Lean apologised to Kate Prouts family for the hurt and distress she caused them when she and her associate Billy Middleton went out of their way to pronounce and promote Adrian Prout an innocent man when the evidence was plain to see that he was lying through his teeth?

I fear that case will haunt her for ever!

Has she 'won' any of the cases she's looking into or is she a liability?
Dr Lean seems very interested in Luke's case.

Funny little story about her (well funny in a sad way.) I may be wrong on the date but it was either 25th june 2010 or 25th June 2011. She tried to arrange a press conference outside the CCRC. She let all the press know she was going to be there - and no one came.

I've always been amused by that.

Yes, she strives on the publicity.  She and Corinne were all disappointed that the Press had allegedly taken lots of photos of them outside the SCCRC with the 'box' containing Luke Mitchell's Application only for all the editors to discard them.  The Post Office or some local parcel delivery firm wasn't good enough, they had to make a whole big song and dance about it and make a special journey through to Glasgow so as to get the publicity.  You would think that the Press were the Court of Appeal the way they are behaving.

This isn't the first time Corinne has been snubbed by the Press though.  Some time back she and her mother tried to sell Lukes story to a Scottish newspaper with a photo of Luke for £10,000.  Unfortunately for Corinne the newpaper printed the story of her offer and it cost them nothing.  Now that was funny.

This so-called charity has according to the OSCR website still not published accounts despite collecting funds and trading as a charity.  I think I will query this with the Regulator and publish his response.

And now Billy Middleton has removed the WAP website - The ENTIRE site gone

And let's not forget he was making money from this due to all the adverts etc

I can't remember if Dr Sandra Lean gave me her old laptop before or after her and Billy Middleton set up the charity

I do however recall, after I suggested I would give her some money for it, her suggesting I pass it on once Simons name was cleared. By pass it on I mean she specifically suggested I pass it to another family fighting an alledged MOJ.

Well, the laptop in question eventually gave up the ghost. I remember taking it to the women in the village and her partner looked at it for me. It had a virus and was basically knackered - so I binned it

Then blow me down, Sandra Lean made mention of said laptop some years later - will take me a while to find her post - but alluded to me having taken it from her/ not returning it to her

And now others are running with the malicious and false allegation I stole it?

Anyway my point is - if either of these 2 people had an altruistic bone in their body they would not have behaved the way they have

And surely if this so called charity were above board they would have had no problem submitting and publishing their accounts

I look forward to hearing how you get on John

What I'd like to know now is was this malicious and indeed false allegation started by Billy or Sandra; or both? And if so, what were their motives for doing so - what did they hope to achieve?

So they are taking steps to establish contact with the charity? Is that it? What if 'the charity' ignore contact? What's the next step?

As an aside - Jeremy Bambers website is still linked with the Wrongly Accused Person Organisation (other resource) http://jeremybamber.blogspot.co.uk

Wonder what has happened to all those alleged MOJ cases they were supporting/highlighting?

Overdue
This charity failed to provide information on its finances within 9 months of its Financial year end date. Where the number of ‘documents days overdue’ exceeds 75, this charity is classed as ‘defaulting’. We actively pursue defaulting charities using our powers under the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005.
